Everyone knows the off-field incidents that have hampered Adam "Pacman" Jones' career in the NFL. However, the bad decisions were most costly to the Tennessee Titans, who selected the cornerback as the sixth overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft.
Jones' character issues were no secret, as he was still on probation for a fight that took place during college when the draft took place, but the Titans were willing to take the risk.
In July of 2005, before his first NFL season began, Jones was arrested on charges of assault and vandalism from a previous club altercation.
Jones' rookie season wasn't a bad one, but he once again faced legal troubles as soon as the season ended. Before the 2006 regular season began, Jones had three more run-ins with the law.
Jones had a very successful second season in the NFL, recording 62 tackles and four interceptions at cornerback and 440 punt return yards and three punt return touchdowns on special teams.
Of course, though, the criminal saga continued as soon as the season ended. In February of 2007, Jones was involved in an altercation at a strip club in which he allegedly assaulted a dancer and threatened a security guard's life, and a supposed member of his entourage fired a gun, hitting three people. Many more problems and allegations stemmed from the incident, and Jones received a one-year suspension from the NFL via commissioner Roger Goodell.
The Titans traded Jones to the Cowboys prior to his reinstatement. Jones has since played for the Cowboys and Bengals, but his questionable behavior has always remained a factor.
